Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
47. The clubhouse has its electrical and plumbing systems roughed in
Once I had the other half of the clubhouse kitchen framed up (see the
), I began mounting electrical boxes according to the board-approved
that I had drawn (a Manitoba Hydro electrician had vetted the
plan and deemed it "really well" drawn). Despite this positive vetting,
I was properly assured by CJ Electric Ltd. of Beausejour
that they would do all of their wiring fully to code
of what may or may not have appeared on the electrical plan (some "on the
go" changes were in fact made as work progressed). I again acted as a labourer
alongside the electricians. I drilled studs, pulled and stapled wires,
mounted additional boxes and did whatever else I was asked to do. I estimated
that I saved members about $900 by doing the work that an electrician's
helper would normally have done. After the wiring had been inspected and
passed, we began doing plumbing rough ins. I meticulously shopped numerous
retailers in both Winnipeg
to get the best prices possible on all the materials needed for the clubhouse
plumbing. I was happy to once again assist the club's "resident plumber"
on this project. Among other things, he asked me to do all of the plumbing
beneath the floor in the pit that we had dug for that purpose. He patiently
taught me what I needed to know in order to position, fit and glue all
the ABS wastewater pipes, and to position, fit and solder all the water
supply pipes. Our collaboration over the course of several days saved members
a substantial amount money on plumbing costs!
